A»»'i Tb« Ooan, Nowapnpor Publsben AM'I JANUAKY i, JO til Ike For President s spurt at next Re- major indour utinji' iiNdiit I he publican and IK'Hiucratir pn candidates. While President Truman is the logical man to carry the Democratic liiiimer at the next election, he ini.yht refuse to run. Who the Republican nominee will IK- is anybody's ,^ne>s. Hall' a do'/en men are well out in fro'iit for tlio honor, including Xe\v York's Dewey, Minnesota's Stns^en and California's 'Warren. But the candidate amonj;' all of tlicm who catches the popular and the politicians' imagination is (ien. Dwiylit |). KiscnlioWL-r. The excitin,U' tiling about the general is that he never lias played partisan politics and so won Id be eligible I'or either party's ticket. The small matter of his own preference ha^ very little to do with it, If he should be drafted, and be elected, he'd find running the army and \viu- nin.i; a war was child's play compared with what he'd ,i;'ct into in Washington. And on .^-eiiend principles, a military man is not a i;-ood bet I'or the highest civilian office. The melhoils and reqtiire- inents are too dissimilar. War And Height Tall persons who find their beds too short have a ray of hope, for the future, •Standard bed sixes should be 18 inches instead of 74. says the N'atimial Association of Bedding Manufacturers, which is trying- to do something about it. The present sl.ainiaid dates back to Wor'd War I, when tfie average height was ; 'i7 inches, || is now liS, ami the number ol si.v-fori(crs has nearly doubled, Kvidently the first world war did not cause a serious drain on the country's manhood, if despite it, the average height increased. The Napoleonic wars arc supposed lo have left the average J'YeiiHiman an inch shorter than his pre- decesMir before the wars started, Kven this war, with its far heavier loss (if life, has not had serious effects on American youth. The compiered I'luropean countries mils!, lull a different tale, with,starvation lo augment the toll of battle. The war must have stunted the human resources of ail Kin-opt'. Junior When does a man cease ti> be "illlti- ior":' John I), Rockefeller, Jr., recently offered H»H,,")l)l),l)IM) to the I 'nited^Xations I'or use in a Xew York city sile. Me i.s 7'2, and liis father has been dead nine vears. The younger Rockefeller is an unusually generous and public-spirited man, far more praiseworthy ami useful than his fortnnc-.n-athcrin.:;- father. Though filial piety may move him to keep (he "Junior", there is no reason for others to follow him. President McKinley was known as William. McKinley, Jr., down to his election to the presidency. After that he dropped the addition. Those rcfcrrinir to Rockefeller rni^hi reco^ni/e that there comes a time in the lives of all men whei, a man should stand on his own name. Costly Newspaper When a newspaper is burnt by the common hangman, the editor may regard it merely as helpful advertisement: but. when he himself ,^-oes to jail, that's dif- forcnl. When both of these tliin.n's happened to John Peter Zen^'er, New York editor, in 17.'.'4, he protested, and a famous trial established that the jrovenior of Xew York had no riyht to interfere with the freedom of the press. The case has become a landmark in the history of free publication. The /Sender case is recalled by the sale of (he library of I'Ved W. Allsopp, a I-it lie Rock, Ark,, newspaper publisher. The offending issues of Xen^er's "Xe.w York Weekly Journal" fetched $4,400 at public auction. 'If 2en,yer >ven- recalled to life ,he would fi'nd many things in tin- world to astonish him, bti't none more that that his modest newspaper has become on of the world's treasures. Do You Remember?

Mr. O'Connor, a prominent Washington attorney, whose genial personality and after-dinner ballads endeared him to the Nation's great figures for many years, passed away last September.
